Neighborhood Info: Evanston

2247 Ridge Apartments is located in Evanston IL.

Evanston has a history of innovation. Not only is it home to legendary Northwestern University, the city gave children and kids at heart a legendary toy and a cool treat that remain favorites today.

Having seen some youngsters play with pencils and empty spools of thread, Charles Pajeau and Robert Pettit had a Eureka moment in 1914, creating Tinkertoys. 24 years prior, local confectioners — careful to obey the Sunday religious ban (blue laws) on the “soda” part of ice cream soda (thought to be a sin) — replaced it with syrup. The ice creamsundae was now palatable to the pious and magnificent for the masses.

BJB’s talent is rehabbing vintage residences. Among Evanston’s best — the courtyard building at 2247-2257 Ridge. Recently renovated, these apartments offer large floor plans, hardwood floors, newer windows, modernized bathrooms and spacious closets. Thrown in: free water and heat, high speed Internet and satellite TV. It’s no Tinkertoys or ice cream sundae, but it’s not too shabby.

Living here will lots of fun.

Neighborhood Vibe

Apartments in Evanston let residents enjoy many of the same cultural highlights such as art, music and fine dining (with drinks, obviously) as their Chicago neighbors to the south. 

What We Love Most

A typical Saturday for an apartment renter in Evanston might begin with a visit to the massive farmer’s market, followed by a jaunt to the shops in downtown Evanston. Next, they might choose to stay fit with an acrobatic exercise course in The Actor’s Gymnasium or go for a jog along the lakefront. They could wrap up their evening by screening a flick at the 18-screen movie theater near the Davis Metra stop or catch a live jazz set over dinner at legendary Pete Miller’s Steakhouse on Sherman Ave.

Best Way to Get Around

Apartments in Evanston are serviced by the CTA Purple Line, which runs rush hour trains to and from downtown Chicago. The Metra Union-Pacific North Line operates stops at Central, Davis and Main streets in Evanston, and CTA buses operate routes throughout the city as well as the suburban Pace bus.

Heart of the Neighborhood

Evanston has several pockets of happening retail, shopping and dining destinations, and these include the Davis Street "downtown" Evanston district; Central Street near the Metra station and Green Bay Road; and Main/Chicago to the south.
